ADAM SCOTT | 2006
Australian Adam Scott successfully retained the US$3 million Barclays Singapore Open title after beating South African Ernie Els by two shots in a three-hole play-off.
Scott delivered the knock-out blow with a birdie at the par five 18th hole at Sentosa Golf Club's Serapong course to edge Els after both players parred the first two holes at the 16th and 17th.
It was the 11th professional victory, but the first for 2006, for the supremely talented 26-year-old. He coolly dropped in a five foot putt as Els three-putted for bogey on the last after finding thick rough with his drive.
The fourth round of the Major of Asia was cancelled late in the afternoon following two weather suspensions due to adverse weather, sending Els and Scott into a three-hole play-off as they were joint third round leaders on eight-under-under-par 205.
